Ops Mgr 2007 RC2 Installation Order

Dealing with BETA code is always a challenge. Here was my final installation order which reported no errors:

  1. Install Windows server 2003 SP1
  2. Upgrade to Windows server 2003 R2
  3. Install SQL 2005
  4. Install KB918222 (
  5. SQL 2005 SP2 (yes... KB918222 is supposed to be in SP2 but somehow if you install SP2 directly, the pre-req checker will report that it is missing)
  6. Install dotNet Framework 3.0
  7. Install Windows Powershell (If you are planning to experiment on Command Shell)
  8. Run SetupOM.exe from the SCOM Source directory to install OPSMGR 07
Once done, open up the Consolidated Operator Console and use Discovery Wizard to discover servers and clients on the network.

Then, import management packs from the Management Pack folder on the SCOM course files.

A couple of days ago, Microsoft released Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2. I have not tested installation of this and how it would affect Ops Mgr. Will post an update after trying it out
